St. Cyril’s Orthodox Christian Fellowship is Orthodox Christians in Waterloo Region who gather to study our faith. Normally, we say an evening prayer together, receive a spiritual lecture from canonical Orthodox priests all over the world via video chat (and an occasional visit), and then enjoy time together.

This is not a group with membership. All are welcome, and those of us who come together are still faithful members of our Orthodox parishes. These meetings are not affiliated with any Orthodox parish or jurisdiction, rather, it is a lay initiative to come together as Orthodox Christians in this place.

If you are Orthodox, or interested in Orthodoxy, you are welcome to join for a talk (locations are listed in the events, but contact us if you need to know the exact address). Attending an event does not imply membership in any group, or holding any ideology, besides interested in the topic. Please see the calendar below for a list of upcoming events. Below that is a list of past events. To receive email notifications of upcoming events, sign up in the box to the left.
